Petersburg Fire Station # 4 Update

In April 2020, the City temporarily closed Fire Station #4 (Walnut Hill) due to health and safety concerns.

The Fire Station was experiencing severe issues with mold, asbestos, and an overall antiquated infrastructure.

In May, Petersburg City Council approved an emergency requisition in the amount of $46,051 for immediate repairs to Fire Station #4.

Work began in May and the work is anticipated to be complete in August 2020.
